Kinnelon, NJ - As a certified life coach with training in psychology, author Laurice Duffy was understandably devastated and broken by the unexpected news of her beloved husband’s terminal diagnosis. But Laurice’s resilience, courage, and positive outlook didn’t let this tragedy destroy her life, and in her new book, Raising Hope, she shares how choosing hope allowed her to not only support her four sons through their grief but achieve her own personal growth in the process.
More than just one family’s story, Raising Hope offers the reader strategies to use hope and determination to survive the worst that life can throw at you. Laurice’s choice to lead her family with patience, compassion, love, strength, and a dash of humor will inspire, energize and empower.
Raising Hope is much more than a self-help and motivational book. It offers lessons and exercises and ultimately shows how one family courageously navigated life while waiting for death. Hearing others’ descriptions of grief, difficulty, and heartache helps us to see and embrace our own. Laurice’s story delivers a powerful message that no matter our circumstances, we always have the power to choose who we want to be.
Laurice chose hope to guide herself and her four beautiful boys through their tragedy as a commitment to her husband Kevin’s memory. Experiencing this transformation set her on a path to help others who have faced loss or other life-changing circumstances to take back their power so they, too, can reimagine what’s possible and rise up to rebuild a life they love.
About the author:
Laurice Duffy, CPC, ELI-MP, is a life coach whose career inspiration is deeply personal. She combines her innate listening and empathy skills with a BA in psychology and a certification from the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching. Though she always found helping others meaningful, she couldn’t have anticipated that her own life’s journey would shake up all her assumptions and test her resolve. Her husband, Kevin’s battle with ALS and eventual death was her life’s turning point. Kevin’s illness shined a light on the limiting beliefs and behaviors she held close to for too long, namely fear and grasping at control. Letting go of these defense mechanisms ultimately unlocked her strength to move from darkness and despair into a place of peace, fulfillment, and empowerment. She lives in Kinnelon, NJ, with her four college-aged sons.
